We sat outside on the comfy sofas watching the world go by. Unfortunately we then got 20 street hawkers targeting us, luckily not all at once but a touch annoying when some don't go away after the first 'No gracias'.

Service was really good, professional but friendly. The food let it down, perhaps as we were expecting more with the prices or because we had been spoiled elsewhere. Alpaca carpaccio was fine but the Parmesan looked and tasted like the ready grated stuff out of a jar and they were out of capers.

A couple of other starters were not memorable apart from the luminous sauces which seemed too bright? The salad was good however.

Cuy ravioli had potential but didn't quite wow us, more seasoning required.

We ate here for Christmas and it was DELICIOUS. Trout and filet mignon were perfectly cooked, entrees were great and it's really affordable for the quality you get. Nice portions too!

Having completed the Inca Trail 6 out of the 11 of us chose this restaurant to eat one evening. It was so good we took all the others back there the following evening. The service, the food, the atmosphere, all we're just great. It is a little more expensive than others around but at what worked out £15 for 2 course and several cocktails, I wasn't complaining.

We were talked into trying this restaurant by someone promoting it on the sidewalk. It was close to our hotel near the central square. It was a relatively quiet restaurant making making it possible to have a pleasant conversation with another couple at the table. The menu was quite varied and food well presented and very tasty. The service was attentive and friendly. I would readily go back if I were to find myself in Cusco again. By the way, the person promoting the restaurant may offer you a complimentary beverage.

This restaurant is beautiful and quiet. Pisco sours were a nice start to dinner. The garlic shrimp were delicious, but I don't recommend the alpaca as it was not as good as we had other places. It was a bit tough and didn't have much flavor. Don't miss the strawberries in red wine reduction--so good and unusual! Good service, good wine--I would return given the chance.
